Fun Facts:

Mitch's car may not survive the Northeast snow paths, but he is channeling his inner Peggy Carter. Brittany's Christmas tree is growing like the Nutcracker tree... it's mid-January. Natalie has hit the jackpot at a market where second-hand items were all a SINGLE DOLLAR. And she offers some tips for shopping second-hand. Danielle prepped for this by, of course, watching the movie, but also low-key cosplayed at work!
